We had the good fortune of connecting with Ms. Samantha Jewell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ms. Samantha, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success as a writer and craftor: Lady Belle a’ Soi ~ ~ Beautiful to OneSelf ~ is to inspire Beautiful Inner Dialogue & Self Esteem

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I chose my Business writing Name ” Belle a’ Soi” which means: Beautiful to OneSelf When I discovered these words: ” Belle a’ Soi ” I chose from that moment forward to understand how to see myself as Noble, Wonderful and Beautiful. Most importantly I wanted to FEEL Noble, Wonderful and Beautiful I released the constant need of looking in the mirror and started working on the way I saw myself from the inside. I Knew I needed a makeover on the way I FELT ABOUT MYSELF . I began nurturing myself through kind loving thoughts. Overtime, I began to lighten up and shifted into naturally being loving and comforting in my inner dialogue. The development of Beautiful Inner Dialogue has transformed my emotional~attitude towards myself, my life and with others around me. I know now what Beautiful to OneSelf feels and looks like: Beautiful Self Esteem I felt the need to share with others the Blessing of choosing Beautiful Inner Dialogue to Bloom in Beautiful Self Esteem The Beauty of my story is through the journaling and daily dialogue writings I focused on, I realized the passion I have to write. From Ashes to Beauty indeed!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Our itinerary begins with driving up the coast to carmel Caliornia, to begin our vacay we stop at a coffee house for hot carmel lattes and scones. As we drive up the coast we stop along the way and take a heavenly hike to gather fresh lavender from the local lavender farm as well as pick up fresh produce from the local berry and fruit farms. Before checking into Cypress Inn Hotel which we adore due to the old world charm we go to the cheese shop for the best cheeses and breads…and of course enjoy wine tasting. I surprise my best friend, and twin sister with a full day of hair and hail refresh and massage as muse carmel spa. Truly to be in carmel is such a passionate joy for both my sister and I. we also take a leisure drive to monterery for the day and ride bikes with baskets filled with picnic lunch snacks and spend a day on the crisp beach.

Art has been my one of my true inspirations in believing in all women having the wand of Self worth in their minds Beginning with choosing Beautiful Inner Dialogue One of the artists that enchants my mind and spirit to write Beautiful Inner dialogue for women is : Kinko Y. Craft. Images of mystical women of folklore representing the ability and capacity for all women to have beautiful minds to see OneSelf as a God…dess…and a Queen.
